Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: This paper will share an orientation model for faculty administrators and new hirees to map a journey for a good beginning. The model stems from collegial work on orientating new college nursing faculty who are teaching in an undergraduate collaborative nursing degree program. The model termed, New x 2 (new times two) incorporates health promotion, leadership and change theories. The metaphor for the orientation program is a pair of geese. Geese have long been a symbol for team behaviour. When a new goose joins the flock, a space opens in the formation and the flock slows its pace to accommodate the new member. Over the past four years, the college partner has hired over a dozen new faculty and promoting integration of new faculty will continue to challenge all nursing programs as senior faculty retire. The collaboration is unique in that the physical and academic environments are different and are located in distinct provinces. New faculty are expected to assimilate into both the college and university culture, understand academic policies, and comprehend the collaborative curriculum. Two nursing administrators (one from each collaborative partner) share the framework, processes and outcome measures that have been cornerstone to faculty orientation.
